Amazon.co.uk Review

A surprise hit on its original release, Zoo Tycoon over the past year or two has proven to be one of the most accessible and enjoyable PC strategy games on the market. Its sequel is set to enjoy similar success, and deservedly so, for some genuine improvements have been made to an already strong title.

The first thing to hit you is the improved graphics, with a full 3D rendering of your creation before your eyes. The idea, as last time, is to build and successfully run your zoo, and now you can enter Guest Mode, which puts you on the ground and allows you to walk around your zoo. Mind you, that may not be a good plan if you don't keep on top of things. Getting the mixture of animals, good design, accessibility and public interest is no mean feat, and there's going to be plenty going wrong before you get things right.

Still, Zoo Tycoon 2 is a fair game that never leaves you in the dark as to where you've gone wrong. It's also a friendly one; the interface, tutorials and controls are all helpful, and through its zoopedia function, it's not without educational value either.

But does it all work? It certainly does. Whether you're building enclosures and moats, setting up attractions, taking on one of the scenario challenges or simply trying to cause as much chaos as possible, Zoo Tycoon 2 is never less than entertaining. That it's a game all the family can enjoy is a real bonus, too. Recommended. --Simon Brew

Having played sim games since the original Populous, I discovered Zoo Tycoon 1 as a playable game, with nice touches. I found Zoo Tycoon 2 on sale for a fiver, nothing to lose. It turned out to be the best sim game I've ever played (better even than The Sims 2).
I haven't played RC3 fully yet, and that looks *as* good, but the playability of Zoo Tycoon 2 is spot on. The Keeper mode allowed you to explore your zoo, see into the eyes of the guests, and keep your animals clean. This is the best bit, the layout and setting up of cages for the animals is easy, it basically tells you what to lay, so not as finicky as Zoo Tycoon 1.
Keeping the guests happy is relatively easy too, and the way extra items come along as your zoo gains star ratings is great too. I haven't even played the sandbox unlimited cash mode yet, the challenges are enough fun!. The only bad points - it's pretty easy, and it's fairly slow. Well, the second point you'd expect because it's a sim, and the first - well, I'd complain more if it was too hard.
This game has a great 'feel good' factor, when you've created your zoo and everything's working well. The graphics are great, first person mode is fantastic. All in all one of the best games I've ever played, with appeal for all ages and sexes. This is definately one that slipped under the mainstream radar as an all time classic.
Expansion pack out soon with more challenges and creatures. Let's hope they've shot the person who suggested 'dinosaurs' eh?

I was a big a fan of the first version of Zoo Tycoon, and had only high expectations for Zoo Tycoon 2. This game is a big step forward from the previous version, but it's definitely successful.
The graphics are quite good and make the game seem more realistic. There are plenty of animals, along with many scenery items and objects to place in your zoo. The interaction between the animals reflects how they'd react in real life. Also, the customers pay much more attention to the animals in their exhibits.
The best part of the game is creating animal exhibits. No exhibit ever looks the same, so there is lots of variation. There are lots of different plants and objects to place in the exhibits, and its great when the animals interact with their own exhibits to let you know how good you've made it.
There are several different modes, providing hours of gameplay. There are small glitches in the game, but they are very minor.
This is a very good game and I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who liked the first Zoo Tycoon.

This game is amazing and I love it. It's nothing like Zoo Tycoon 1 because in this one you can go down, be a zoo keeper and help out. I am nine and I love the game!

if you buy this then it will be worth the money. You can also buy lots more extension packs which make it even more fun.

I am a huge Zoo Tycoon fan, so clearly I bought ZT2 as soon as it hit the shops. I've been playing it now for a few weeks.
Initial impressions are good, it's very "pretty" compared to ZT1, the 3D views are very fluid - although you will need a good PC to get it to run fast enough. You will spend the first few hours just messing and admiring, then comes the actual game play.
ZC2 is quite different with regards to game play, in my opinion the new biome brush detracts from the challenge of creating interesting habitats for your animals. There is no longer a suitability rating. Instead of this you now have to feed your animals and keep them happy with animal toys, which is a nice touch.
There is also a new challenge of Zoo Ratings, in order to unlock all the items you must improve your Zoo rating by owning more animals, more species, having happy guests etc... This is good, but after a few games it does become annoying always starting with the same animals.
The new game also allows you to replace fences with moats and cliffs, this is a good way to save money whilst building your enclosures and also gives the zoo a more natural feel which is nice.
All in all it's a great game, however I do think game play has suffered slightly to give way to the superior graphics. If you love Zoo Tycoon, you'll like Zoo Tycoon 2.

Picked this up yesterday and it's just one of those games you play with a big stupid grin on your face.
If you liked the first Zoo Tycoon this is a must buy. No stress, just pure fun. I have spent far too much time just wandering about looking at the zoo I made and feeding and cleaning out the animals.

When i first new about zoo tycoon 2 was out I had to get it so when my Auntie asked what I wanted for Christmas I said
ZOO TYCOON 2 !
At first I found the game boring a bit because there wasn't many animals (I wasn't really thinking about expansions)but after a while i really got in to it I was breeding all sorts of animals like zebras,elephants,rhinos etc but I didn't really let in the guest's at first I was just getting used to the game.I love the new habitat control's I just loved making waterfalls (I thought that was really cool)and I liked all the new differant terrains like shrub,wetland and a few others and it was better that it told you what to give or do with the animals.
so I thought it was a really great game.
SUPER GAME BRILLIANT,GREAT,SPECTACULAR!
